National Minimum Wage

Are you paying all your workers the national minimum wage? If not, the penalties increase substantially at the beginning of March.

The current penalty is 50% of the total wages underpaid since 6 April 2009, subject to a maximum of £5,000. This will increase to 100% of the total underpayment, subject to a maximum of £20,000. Paying arrears before HMRC catch up with you will avoid the penalty.
